The Zombies will be performing at Birmingham’s The Jam House in St Paul’s Square as part of their UK tour.

The St Albans band rose to fame back in 1961 with hits like “She’s Not There”, “Tell Her No” and “Time of the Season” enjoying chart success on both sides of the Atlantic. The band has been hailed by NME magazine as ’British psychedelia with a kaleidoscope vision that rivals even The Beatles’.

The Zombies enjoyed US chart success in the 60s with their 1968 album “Odyssey and Oracle” which ranked number 80 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and number 32 in a recent Top 100 British Albums chart featured by NME. The Zombies are cited as influences by many major artists such as Super Furry Animals, Artic Monkeys and Courtney Love.

The Zombies’ touring band features original members lead vocalist Colin Blunstone, keyboard and vocalist Rod Argent, bass player Jim Rodford, guitarist Tom Toomey drummer and Steve Rodford.

John Bunce, General Manager at The Jam House, said: “The Zombies music is as fresh and relevant today as it was back in the 1960s. Their sound continues to influence both established and emerging talent and it will be a pleasure to watch them make their Jam House debut.”

Tickets to see The Zombies are priced at £12 and available to buy online from www.thejamhouse.com
